"Hey...are those solar panels on your roof?"

I posted a picture on FB of something in front of my house, but the solar panels on the roof of my house got all the attention!

In the deep south, people believe all sorts of crazy stories about solar power.  It was nice to have people asking me questions so I could clear up misconceptions.  The curious ones identified themselves and by asking they didn't feel threatened if they learned that some of their information was "wrong."  I'd rather talk about solar energy anyway.
